Massage therapy is widely recognized as a beneficial adjunct to Physiotherapy and manual therapy. As a modality, it involves hands-on manipulation of soft tissue which promotes healing, enhances muscle release, improves local circulation, and reduces stress. Addressing these factors along with your Physical Therapy program may help your body to rehab more efficiently, alleviate pain, and promote general well-being. As a non-invasive treatment, massage therapy can be an alternative to pharmacologic pain relief, and can help you to improve function and better execute your exercises.
At Amazing physiotherapy our massage therapist work closely with your Physiotherapist to ensure optimal treatment. We train our massage therapists in a variety of techniques and orthopedic conditions.
Who Can Benefit from medical Massage?
Studies show that massage therapy integrated into physiotherapy treatment can effectively regulate inflammation that follows intense PT exercise, and also promote faster healing. While most physiotherapy patients can benefit from some form of massage, we find that it is particularly useful to treat the following conditions:
- Chronic low back pain
- To reduce pain intensity/severity and anxiety in patients undergoing surgery
- To protect from illness/boost immunity
